[R] graphics edge in win.metafile?

Try using Paste, Special in WORD or PowerPoint.  The graphic will be
slightly smaller too but I find the size is just right.

What works better for me, but does require some forethought, is something
like this:

windows(width = 5.8, height = 5.8, pointsize = 12)
par(mar = c(4.5, 4.5, 4, 0.5) + 0.1)#  <-- sized to fit your graphic.
###        Customizing par() may solve your cut & paste problem, too.
### graphic generating logic goes here.
savePlot("graphic name", type = "wmf")

The rather than cut & paste, I use WORD or PowerPoint's "insert" to point to
the new graphic.

Subject: [R] graphics edge in win.metafile?

Hi... I copy a plot to the clipboard via win.metafile and then paste the
clipboard into a powerpoint show. The problem is that there is considerable
white space between the edges of the plot and the figure pasted into
powerpoint. I've tried many par settings to get less white space between the
plot sides and the  bounding box.. but haven't succeeded. 

win.metafile("", height=3, width=3)
